JU releases cut-off list for PG courses
Jammu, July 19: The wait is finally over! University of Jammu on Monday announced the first cut off list for admissions to various Post Graduate courses for academic session 2010-11. Hordes of students, who had applied in different subjects, thronged the varsity campus to check their name in the first list.
However, emotionally charged students had mixed reactions to the first cut-off list. Some were confident of their career while others felt they could make it to their favourite course in the second and third list as the cut-off merit comes down.
According to the officials, the cut-offs for popular subjects witnessed a marginal rise notwithstanding poor graduation results. The graph of graduations results had registered a sharp decline of 13 per cent this year. Last year, the pass percentage of regular candidates stood at 79 percent whereas the same had been reduced to 66 percent in 2010.
With over 1500 seats on offer this year, about 16000 admission forms were sold by the University and it had anticipated tough competition among the aspirants.
The cut-off figures in most of the Post Graduate departments were purely in accordance with the previous trends, as faculty of sciences recorded relatively higher cut-off percentages in comparison to all other faculties.
Except for science courses, few subjects in Arts stream saw a marginal increase. Chemistry remained favourite among the students as it witnessed a highest cut-off of 79.85 per cent this year while Botany and Zoology subjects also recorded high cut-off of 79.14 per cent and 79.52 per cent.
The Arts stream subjects like Sanskrit, Buddhist Studies and Economics also saw marginal increase in cut-offs as compared to previous year. The lowest merit for these subjects stood at 64.22 per cent 61.43 per cent and 65.87 per cent respectively.
The cut-offs in popular subjects like Physics, Electronic, Mathematics and Statistics were 74.52 per cent, 76.42 per cent, 76.38 per cent and 61.52 per cent respectively. The lowest merit in the first list of other departments was Education (64.57 per cent), Sociology, (68.10 per cent), Psychology (67.95 per cent), Economics (65.87 per cent), History (64.85 per cent), Commerce (68.91 per cent), Hindi (62.57 per cent), Urdu (62.57 per cent), Punjabi (57.52 per cent), Political Science (66.52 per cent), Library Sciences (72.30 per cent), Geology 63.52 per cent), Geography (73.29 per cent), M Lib (72.13 per cent).
For students, who are eligible as per the norms of the first cut-off list, admission formalities would be taken up between July 19 and July 21. The second cut-off list would be released on July 22.
Meanwhile, thousands of students remained glued with notice boards displaying the first cut-off lists. If some students were lucky to make it in the first round, such was not the case for the majority.
“I was expecting my name in the list but the cut-off for Chemistry registered a steep rise of 2-3 per cent this year. Though I couldn’t find place in first list, I am hopeful of getting selected in the second cut-off list to be released after three days,” an aspirant told Greater Kashmir.
Naresh Gupta, another aspirant, said, “The cut-off is very high in the first list and I doubt whether I will get admission in this round. I will be waiting for the second list. Hope I get luckier then.”
